I became curious last night when watching Live From the Players and GC ran their new promo for the channel. It is the one with quick candid shots of most of their on-air talent with the song "Masterpiece" by Andy Grammer as the music. Not a bad promo.

I noticed in the shot where they show Lisa Cornwell at the Golf Central desk that they have changed it. Originally that showed her and a man next to her laughing about something. Now they have digitally zoomed in so you only see her, with just a bit of the man's hand sneaking into the right side of the shot.

I cannot for the life of me recall who the guy was in the shot next to her originally. I can only assume that whoever it was is no longer with Golf Channel. Anyone know who that person is who used to be in the shot?

Could it be one of these guys?

Well, all three of those are still listed on the GC site as on-air talent so I dunno. I think they are all still there so it's odd to edit them out of the shot.

I don't think so. I can't remember who it was but the guy was wearing a jacket and tie, which doesn't seem like either of them would do, and they weren't typically on the desk with her.

Because it proves there is someone who actually watches this channel, which I was unaware of, rather than it just playing in the background of a pro shop as white noise.

I was just curious about why they changed it.

Was thinking maybe someone had recorded something on their DVR from a few weeks ago that could illuminate me.

I rarely enjoy the programming on TGC any longer.  Mostly a bunch of garbage.  I do tune in when they have tour coverage, or a little post or pre-game analysis.  I like Duval and Nobilo.

Reviving this to note they have reverted back to the original promo this week and I can now see the fellow sitting next to Cornwell.

I do not recognize him. Wearing a suit, roundish face, dark hair, full trimmed beard, kind of black and gray, maybe late 30s or early 40s.

Kessler was great on Golf Talk Live but I gather he was a handful to deal with.

I grew to really like Kelly. She was miscast when they put her in the anchor chair for tournament telecasts but once she moved back into leading panels at tournaments or working on studio shows she became quite good and had a nice sense of the game. Arnold loved her and the feeling seemed mutual.

The other day GC ran a clip from Golf Central in '04 with Brian Hammons and Jennifer Mills at the desk. I still think that team was their best for that show.

Agreed. Miss Brian and Jennifer as wells. Harkens back to a happier time in golf for me as well. As for Kesler, general consensus is he was fired for going toe to toe with Arnold on the Callaway ERC issue. But Academy Live with him and Golf Talk Live were two shows I recorded every week.

He has been on a couple of programs this year involving the Champions Tour.
